The nominations for the Sky Bet League 1 Player of the Month award for April.Jermaine Beckford (Preston North End)
Beckford has admitted that he is enjoying his football again, to which five important goals in the month will testify. He has formed an irrepressible partnership with Joe Garner and is demonstrating his finishing prowess under pressure once more.
Ben Gladwin (Swindon Town)
The 22-year-old came into his own in April with six of Swindon’s nine goals, including a first career hat-trick in the 4-2 win at Rochdale. Tall, powerful and happy to pick a pass with either foot, he was used both centrally and wide.
Will Grigg (Milton Keynes Dons)
Grigg has become the indispensable link of MK Dons' forward thrust, using his intelligence and movement to bring team-mates into play. He scored six goals in seven games with a lovely finish in the 3-0 win at Fleetwood Town being the highlight.
James O’Connor (Walsall)
Walsall were tumbling down the table when O'Connor returned to bring about a change of fortune with his steadying influence and experienced reading of the game. His calmness contributed to five clean sheets in seven unbeaten April games.
The winners will be announced on Friday.
